So, my husband and I had a little disagreement last night. He can’t understand why I stay up until 2 am making cakes and cupcakes when it is much easier, and actually a little less expensive to go to a bakery and buy something. He actually could not see the parallel when I asked him why he wants to get up at 4 am to go spend the day on a boat with a fishing rod when I can just go to Whole Foods and get something that has already been cleaned and deboned.
I guess he had a valid point, though, when he asked WHY I needed to make 5 different versions of cakes and cupcakes for Ellie’s birthday.
This was the cake we had last night to celebrate her ACTUAL birthday. (Sorry about the blurry picture. I forgot to take one before bringing the cake to the table, and I was getting yelled at to cut the cake instead of photographing it!!!)
The second set of cupcakes and the second cake are made from the recipe Glorious Treats posted recently. I loved it. The frosting is my favorite from I am baker (and the rose cake is also inspired by hers).
I don’t care what he thinks, by the way, my peanut is worth every bit of butter, flour, sugar, and vanilla. ❤
